My battery went dead left a light on, I can't see the battery unless I take the wheel off is there any other way to tell if it is a top mounted battery or a side mounted one.

Is it the starter or something else

Through some research on the net, found steps to replace TCM/ECM. Reinstalled with a used unit with identical numbers. It said when you first turn key on and check engine light comes on that the unit is working good. followed all steps. Car runs pretty good but check engine light still stays on. Cleared with code reader and restarted. Light comes back on P0601 internal controller malfunction, also saying repair cost of $40. I'm lost here. Is the TCM/ECM good or is there something else to look at. Getting 12v and good ground.


the problem occurs sometimes

My car ran for 15-20 min then died a few times. Now it don't start I replaced the computer, distributor, and fuel pump. This is really frustrating what could it be?

The timing belt. Now before we took the old belt off the book told us to set the timing marks on the two cam gears to point towards eachother before we removed old belt so we did that and replaced the belt and put it all back together. The car runs great, accelerates good and rpms come down good. I noticed now while you sit parked for a minute or two whether your in gear or not the idle runs lower then normal. The car usually runs around 900 rpms at idle and now it's about 700 rpms. Why would it do that

A cracking sound come from the steering column like something broke or cracked and then my cars air bag light came on. What would that be and is it OK to drive without getting hit in the face by a 200mph air bag because it just decides to deploy.

gas tank is always full only drive for about 15-30 min

Car runs great, has brake issues. Drives smooth, slowing down around 30 mph and under the abs will kick on and takes away most of the braking. No abs light on in dash, doesn't seem like it kicks it full abs. Please help!

I took the car to a repair shop to have afront end alignment.They said they could not do the alignment because the right front cradle was broke.4 years ago i hit a deet on the right side.they also said the right cradle was rustrd out.they believe the damage is a result of the deer accident

this happens about 8 to 10 minutes of driving

Car failed emission test

Don't know why it was running good last night,no check engine light,but it will not do anything

I was driving down the street and the acceleration started going out and then about 20 yards the power steering went out. Made it about 5 more yards to the side of the road where it completely shut down. When i try to start it up it starts to turn over and dies. Had gas and a good battery.

It happened twice on turns and once on a complete stop
I heard it might be cranshaft sensor acting up any other suggestions

I have had many issues with my climate controls with A/C and heat with the A/C I have to run a jumper wire to a relay to a toggle switch inside the car on the ground side for A/C and this has worked for years however I have no heat... I have flushed the system and it seems the heat is running through the coil but I only get warm air when its not to cold out but when its freezing out no heat at all. I considered replacing the heater coil but I'm gonna take dash apart to see if its getting hot which I believe it is but what else would cause this issue? Please help is there an actuator controlling the heat as well and where is it if so?
